Logtar is on two wheels again

Yes its an old bike, yes it is a little beat up... but I am riding again (or I will be once the snow stops over here). We have snow today, way to start spring.

I got a Yami Maxim 550 (1982) very cheap (not trying to compete with Taz or anything) It runs good and the only thing I have to do is replace the back break because its almost gone, but I got the parts for free. New rubber and an extra back wheel. The owner seemed to know a thing or two about bikes so its pretty well kept. He just got a nice Harley.

Here is a pic, more to come some other day.

beat that thing like a rented mule, because lets face it, it IS a rented mule. This should scratch your itch till you find what you're really looking for.

I am actually thinking of talking to a local pilot and paying for his fuel for some local flight and picture taking (of course when the weather is nicer)

You SO need to add some type of mullet while riding that thing.
